The workshop will focus on the current Spectral Imaging Technology used in active and preventive art conservation. The basic principles of spectral imaging will be discussed, and the available technological solutions explained. Potential applications on cultural heritage will be presented from real case studies, and the future perspectives will be discussed.
XpectralTEK is a company with focus on imaging diagnostic, creating tools to assist professionals in their daily work. It offers quality proven solutions, with specialisation in spectral imaging.
XpectralTEK have developed a system capable of high resolution imaging in real time. Two systems already exist: XpeCAM X01, which operates between 350-1200nm and captures images with up to 30 bandwidths, and XpeCAM X01-DOC which operates between 350-1150nm with 11 bandwidth. Both systems are driven by proprietary XpecEYE software that is fully functional and easy to use. These will be demonstrated during this one day event.
The seminar will be lead by António Cardoso.
